    Rwanda; a multicultural African country with more than ten million inhabitants, has a village called Banyarauanda which has three different ethnic groups; Tutsis, Hutus and Twas. These ethnic groups share the same culture, languages and some tasks such as agriculture and livestock. Moreover, when the Tutsis was in charge of the small town; monarchy, everything was peaceful and equitable; however, in 1923 Banyarauanda became a Belgian colony with a different way of rule where the Tutsis was a superior class; more civilized and closer to Europeans. “Tutsis was Europeans under a black skin, more intelligent and more suitable for the government” (Museo memoria y Tolerancia, 2015). This new way of racism made a social bomb in Rwanda where the Hutus started to abhor the Tutsis for their new privileges and status. Despite having a privileged position; the Tutsis joined the anti-colonialist; a recent movement with the objective of the end off the colonial period emerging the African Continent, with this move the Belgians with the support of the Catholic…

    The Rwandan Raze The Rwandan genocide was like a firecracker, fast, explosive, and over in a flash. “Most of the killing was carried out by two Hutu radical militant groups: the Interahamwe and the Impuzamugambi,(“Rwandan genocide”)” supported by the Rwandan government.

    The population in Rwanda consisted of 3 ethnic groups: 85% Hutu, 14% Tutsi, and 1% Twa. During that period of time the Belgians favored the Tutsi more than the Hutus; the Belgians actually educated the Tutsi in order to run the government, causing an unintended division amongst the two cultural groups. In 1961, the Hutus exiled all the Tutsis, and by 1962 the Hutus exiled all Tutsi government officials. Over time the Hutus and Tutsi created two individual political groups: Rwandese Patriotic…

    The State of Affairs in Africa has always created stereo-types as a doomed continent with unavoidable tribal conflict and ethnic cleavages. It’s hard to understand why there were so many wars and instability in Africa in the late 90’s. Over the last four decades, nearly twenty African countries in the Sub-Saharan Africa area have experienced at least one form of war. The biggest and deadliest war was the Rwandan genocide. Most of the wars occurred because of influences Europeans had on African…

    In the film Hotel Rwanda, the media had a significant impact on the events that happened there. Radio was used by the reporters, and that had an impact on the events there as well. Also, reporters there faced the ethical dilemma of reporting all of the facts to the public while putting themselves in danger, or not telling the public the entire truth to keep themselves safe. I do not think that there is a way to balance these responsibilities. During the genocide in the country Rwanda,…

In 100 days, 800,000 to 1 million people were mercilessly slaughtered by Hutu militia. The Hutus were targeting the Tutsi minority, as well as their political enemies.
